The officer leading the Colour Party is a captain with two wide rings. The officer carrying the Regimental Colour is a 2nd lieutenant, with one wide gold ring. The officers also have a crimson sash around their waist with the tassels hanging on the left side, and are armed with swords. Sergeants and warrant officers have a red sash over the right shoulder. They wear green forage caps, the officers having gold braid on the peak.  The men do not wear gaiters, an item that was discontinued in the 1970s.
